Cannot place while overlapping another object

I removed a foundation piece from near my Abyss of Yog alter. I didn’t notice that it was underneath one of the little poles with a skull on it. Now I can’t replace the foundation piece because I get the message, “Cannot place while overlapping another object”.

I know, I should’ve just used the upgrade system of placing a foundation over it, but you don’t get any materials back from doing that way. We definitely should get materials back just as if we had broken the piece.

The bug: I can’t place a foundation in the same exact spot where one just was because a small bit of the altar is touching it. Please address this. It’s ruined my building. I have to tear down the whole fully upgraded altar just to replace a single foundation block. This is damn near a game ending frustration for me…

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Place foundations.
  2. Place altar on top.
  3. Remove a foundation.
  4. Try to replace that removed foundation.
